"Written in words so intimate, calm, kind, and immediate, this extraordinary book feels like a message from our very own heart....Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most important voices of our time, and we have never needed to listen to him more than now."
--Sogyal Rinpoche

Fear is destructive, a pervasive problem we all face. Vietnamese Buddhist Zen Master, poet, scholar, peace activist, and one of the foremost spiritual leaders in the world--a gifted teacher who was once nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr.--Thich Nhat Hanh has written a powerful and practical strategic guide to overcoming our debilitating uncertainties and personal terrors. The New York Times said Hanh, "ranks second only to the Dalai Lama" as the Buddhist leader with the most influence in the West. In Fear: Essential Wisdom for Getting through the Storm, Hanh explores the origins of our fears, illuminating a path to finding peace and freedom from anxiety and offering powerful tools to help us eradicate it from our lives

The varieties of things people fear and how they fear them are all discussed and meditation exercises are given, from the really simple to the intermediate. Clear, organized, and useful.

An easy introduction to Nhat Hanh's Buddhist teaching. As I read it I thought it could be useful to people who get caught up in their own worries and anxiety. It presents a useful perspective on anxiety.
